What's Up for April. Saturn's rings open wide. And meteors are marred by moonlight.
Hello and welcome. I'm Jane Houston Jones at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
Bright, golden Saturn rises in the late evening early in the month. Look low in the southeast below Virgo's bright star Spica.
Saturn's north pole is now tilted towards Earth, giving us the best view of the rings since 2006. The rings are tilted 18 degrees now and will be 22 degrees open by year end.
